The only training of its kind, the ACCESS Institute, co-hosted by the Center for Survivor Agency and Justice and the New Mexico Coalition Against Domestic Violence, is a 2-day training that will provide non-lawyer legal advocates with a range of skills, networks, resources and strategies to address the costs and financial barriers domestic and sexual violence survivors face when seeking safety and justice. Tentative sessions include: foundations of survivor centered economic advocacy, exploring the ethical rules and opportunities to expand non-lawyer legal advocacy; advocate self care; multi-level economic advocacy in housing systems; addressing court barriers; coerced debt and debt traps; building better advocate-attorney partnerships; and supporting DV survivors through economic impact of the criminal system.
